“Let our advanced worrying become advanced thinking and planning.”
“The “P” in PM is as much about ‘people’ management as it is about ‘project’ management.”
“If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.”
“A project is complete when it starts working for you, rather than you working for it.”
From the time we receive your purchase order for your new turnkey system until the time you give us your final approval, there is a project manager whose responsibility is to keep all the parties moving ahead, keep them aligned, keep our budgets in line and keep our timelines – they are running the project. As your single point of contact, your experienced systems integration project manager will keep you updated on project developments and instill confidence in our services.
After engineering provided the equipment specifications and supply chain vetted the vendors’ ability to meet them, it is now the project manager’s job to ensure that the purchased equipment conforms with all requests. They will administer or participate in the OEM factory acceptance testing for all critical equipment, develop punch lists and hold vendors accountable for finding appropriate resolutions if necessary.
A dedicated site manager will oversee everything that happens at your location in partnership with the project manager. They will monitor equipment rigging and placement, proper utility installation, and powering up of machines. The site manager also coordinates and directs all contractor resources to ensure everything runs smoothly during installation. That may even include client-supplied resources. With boots on the ground, your dedicated site manager ensures all pieces of your new automated packaging line are in place for our engineering team to commence advanced testing of the system and work towards a successful production start.
Before the project can be signed off and approved, project management organizes and directs the various resources necessary to achieve “start-up” status for all system components and directs the process of bringing the overall system online and up to agreed-upon production rates and quality metrics. This process concludes in the Site Acceptance Test, during which your project manager will document the test data and any punch list items. If necessary, they will direct any follow-up activities required to fulfill our commitment to you and guarantee a successful start-up.
Your Syntakt project manager will also organize and oversee training of your personnel, including operators, maintenance techs, and engineering, to prepare the transition of ownership of your new integrated secondary packaging line into your hands.
